Get. It. Done.Wednesday, June 06, 2012
It's time to come clean and tell you that I have been a mess the past few weeks. One minute I can't wait to redecorate and the next I convince myself that this move is a colossal mistake. I am trying to be positive but there are those moments where my doubts get the best of me. Throughout my almost two years in Chicago, I have had many moments where I've looked out the window and wondered how I ended up two thousand miles away from the city I always called home. I have questioned this move countless times. And while I love Chicago, there are still moments when I wonder what I'm doing here.
I wanted to share this with you because I've had a few readers tell me how brave I am, and it is so important to me that you all know that I am no more brave than any of you. Was my move a big decision? Yes. Was it bold? I suppose it was. But please do not sell yourself short. If you are thinking of taking that leap of faith, go for it. If I've learned one thing in my 20s (which will be over in three months) it's that now is the time to live.
I have grown so much and wouldn't be the person that I am today had I not moved to Chicago. I can't imagine my life without the friends I've made. Without The Everygirl. Without my best girl/business partner. And while I am just moving a few miles away, I am going to miss my little home. Fortunately, my mom will be here next week and I have some of the most supportive friends a girl could ask for. And Buddy. He's handsome and perfect and I don't know what I'd do without my little roommate.
CrossFit! Can't give that up. I am loving it!

How do you reduce stress when your to do list piles up and how do you cope with big changes in your life?
